Jacksonville’s historic neighborhoods of Avondale and Riverside, located just two miles southwest of the urban core, are both charming and hip at the same time.
Avondale’s sophisticated, oak-lined avenues cater to upscale homeowners seeking a home with character and history. The historic district is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Five Points area in Riverside is a bohemian neighborhood with funky coffee shops, outdoor cafes, unique eateries and antique stores. Million-dollar riverfront homes and renovated apartment buildings are abundant. But there is nothing pretentious about this area—instead, the vibe here is that of community, urban living, and keeping it local.
Popular spots in Avondale and Riverside include the Cummer Museum of Arts and Gardens, Bold City Brewery, and gourmet eateries like Derby on Park, The Brick, Black Sheep, and Orsay.
